antique French embroidered  and lace christening gown

antique French embroidered and lace christening gown

A romantic and feminine little dream of a dress for a very memorable occasion! This stunning antique christening gown is one-of-a-kind work of art. Loomed of an airy white linen batiste, it's entirely hand-made and hand embroidered. Vertical panels of floral English cutwork embroidery and tiny pin-tuck pleats alternate with fine bands of Valenciennes lace throughout the body of the dress. The high waist, sleeves and neckline are all edged with lace, and a wide scalloped flounce, also embroidered with floral English cutwork, decorates the hem of the skirt. The dress closes at the back with a series of elegant cloth covered white buttons. Likely dating from the turn of the 20th century this precious little christening gown is in impeccable condition! Dimensions: overall length: 34.5in., width across the chest 8.5in., width at the base of the skirt 34.5in.
